Avocado White Cheddar Grilled Cheese

DSC_2003

Some things are really easy to mess up. Examples include going a full day without tripping, taking a bad photograph and letting flowers die.

On the contrary, some things are really easy to get right. Examples include procrastinating and tearing paper.

Now it is time for another category: things that are super easy to do, but at the same time, you can seriously mess up if you just cross that thin line. This category includes walking, cooking caramel and making grilled cheese. Grilled cheese is so easy, simple and delicious to make, but it can turn out to be pretty terrible, too. Hard, burnt and plasticy orange are not components that should be in a grilled cheese.

The perfect grilled cheese starts with the essential ingredients: butter, cheese and bread, among other items.

After you gather your essentials, prep by slicing your green fruit.

Smear butter on one side of each piece of bread, and lay down flat. Spread cream cheese on one side of the open-face sandwich and then place the sliced avocado on top. Next? The cheese.

Smash it together, and heat a skillet.

Remember to cook until golden brown, not burnt. Fine, fine lines if you forget about what you're doing...

  4. Avocado is my ultimate comfort food (and hangover cure)! This looks so freaking delicious...I haven't had grilled cheese in forever. That needs to change.

    I love grilled cheese with avocado. I'm not always successful at getting the cheese to melt enough. Your grilled cheese looks perfect!
